Kansas Power Pool is switching gears to transition the annual KPP Fall Planning Summit to a virtual event to ensure our members can still learn, network, and communicate safely from their own offices or remote workstations.  Join us for a series of events from August 28th-Sept 5th over the lunch hour.   

We have a headline of nationally known speakers such as Joy Ditto, APPA CEO & President and Dennis Pidherny from FitchRatings.  Also tune in to hear Victor Lay from Spring Hill, Tennessee describe the trials and tribulations of a full-blown cyber attack on their city.  KPP Staff will highlight a few exciting projects that will be moving the needle towards the KPP Strategic Plan objective of assisting members in the area of technology, safety, and distribution system design.
